Beitraege zur Hagiographie

Ideas about holiness and sacredness, people venerated as saints, artefacts, and stories about things that are holy have gone far beyond the religious realm in determining the social, political, economic and cultural life in the European societies of the past.

The series Beitraege zur Hagiographie is devoted to the meaning-generating function of writing about the sacred and the saints in historical epochs and in the current debate on religion. It offers representatives of historical and literary studies, theology and church history, religious studies and sociology a forum for presenting and discussing their theories of the sacred, their methods of researching the sacred, and hagiographical ways of writing, as well as their empirical analyses of material objects and hagiographical texts.
